The Morning Breeze Tended To The Rose, By Hafiz Shirazi

The morning breeze tended to the rose,
A maid-in-waiting, as the flower grows.
If in the sun you have a shady refuge,
Seek the shade of a rose, and one who glows.

در باغ چو شد باد صـبا دایه گـل
بربسـت مـشاطـه‌وار پیرایه گـل
از سایه به خورشید اگرت هست امان
خورشید رخی طلب کن و سایه گـل
